Our group has established strong track records in the development of theory and algorithms for pattern recognition, image analysis and computer graphics.
Projects in this area have included: symmetric axes detection for complex image patterns, character and speech recognition. Image segmentation using deformable models and markov random field regularisation, automatic image video indexing and retrieval by content.
In computer graphics we have developed graphical modelling techniques for facial and hand gestures animation as well as computer synthesis of Chinese calligraphy. Several multimedia projects are being conducted on multimedia document management and workflow systems for the garment and textile industry and in interactive multimedia learning.
